Detoxification

In the modern world, we have so many chemicals, heavy metals and other pollutants entering our bodies on a daily basis that detoxification has become a prerequisite to health and longevity.

Food can be a source of nutrition to maintain health, or it can be a source of imbalance and accumulation of toxins. A wide variety of factors contribute to our food choices, and at some point in our lives we need to take a good look at these factors and re-orient ourselves if we are to sustain health.

Food Choices

Exercise

Recent studies are finding that body movement is the simplest and most affordable daily contribution to our health.

“Exercise lowers your risk of chronic diseases so much that researchers have described it as 'the best preventive drug' for many common ailments."                 --Dr. J. Mercola

Stress alters our hormone balance, microbiome and biochemistry and makes us more vulnerable to, if not directly causing, chronic illness.

Stress Reduction

Now known to affect many aspects of health and many systems in the body, a balanced gut microbiome is essential for optimal health and longevity. The Standard American Diet (SAD) contributes to an imbalance by encouraging and feeding malevolent bacteria, yeasts and fungi.

Sleep

Deep, quality sleep is essential to health. It is not only revitalizing, but is required for certain biological processes such as detoxification of the brain.

Water is fundamental to life on earth. It is an almost magical molecule. Cell hydration is necessary for sustained health.

Hydration

More and more studies are revealing the importance of such attitudes as self-love, forgiveness and gratitude in improving health. Fun, laughter and light-heartedness increase wellness.
